Jewish Living Center and the Lucas County Traffic Safety Program present:

 

KEEP YOUR KEYS: EMPOWERING YOUR INDEPENDENCE

Nearly half of senior drivers worry about losing their freedom and mobility when it’s time to give up the car keys, according to a survey conducted by AAA. Because “keeping the keys” is important to mature drivers, Lucas County Traffic Safety Program is partnering with Jewish Living Center of Greater Toledo to help mature drivers gain the confidence and skills necessary to drive safer, longer. 

Join us for a 4-week workshop featuring experts and information that will keep senior drivers driving as long and as safely as possible. Each session will be from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Sekach Building, 6505 Sylvania Ave.

Session 1: Thursday, March 28

Pharmacy and audiology experts will speak on what effects driving ability; blood pressure and hearing checks

 

Session 2: Thursday, April 4

The Distracted Brain with Jamie Blazevich and Keeping the Keys with AAA

 

Session 3: Thursday, April 11

Roundabouts and Safety with ODOT, expert speakers from UTMC, Tai Chi, and the Ohio State Highway Patrol CarFit registrations will be available

 

Session 4: Thursday, April 18

CarFit Check-Ups: Trained technicians will assess how well the senior driver’s car “fits” them. Technicians will check steering wheel tilt and position, the distance at which the driver sits from the steering wheel, the line of sight above the steering wheel, the position of the driver to gas and brake pedals, and adjust mirror settings to eliminate blind spots (Registration for CarFit appointments required – each appointment lasts 20 minutes)

 

SPACE IS LIMITED - REGISTRATION REQUIRED FOR ALL WORKSHOPS BY FRIDAY, MARCH 22
